There's something magical about the high desert town of Joshua Tree, CA. It's difficult to explain, but it gets under your skin. The power and the beauty of a place so wild and yet so harsh helps you connect with the things that really matter. There are never ending skies of technicolor hue, and the cool mornings that turn to hot desert days make you understand how a person could escape the confines of an urban lifestyle in favor of the wide open sands. Human connection is key here, and there's no better host to usher us in, then JT's own desert queen Susan Burnett of Mojave Sands.
